Uncle Larry is retiring.

Recommended Posts

Larry Fford, aka Uncle Larry, has decided to call it a day and retire. He was the nicest used watch and clock tools supplier in my opinion, on the web. I bought most of my good used tools from him, including a Levin watchmakers lathe, a Levin cross slide, and myriad other tools and supplies over the years. These tools were always in good shape, very reasonably priced, and quickly shipped from his home base in Ontario, Canada. He will be sorely missed as he had a fantastic selection and was great to work with. He'll be selling off his remaining stock over the next few weeks, and will be closing his website at the end of January. 

If you're in the market for some good used tools, I advise you to visit his website at:

Here's his announcement:

Dec 1/2018. Due to ill health and too many birthdays, I have decided to retire effective today. On Monday Dec 3rd I will upload (most of) the remaining inventory, then close down between Christmas and New Years. We will reopen Jan 3rd at which time our webpage will be converted to various discounts, and the page will die on Jan 31st. I cannot find the words to properly describe my feelings....it has been a long run, with a lot of fun, a bunch of friendships...THANKS!

Please note I have no financial affiliation with Larry, other than being a very satisfied customer who was pleased to buy some of his goodies over the years.

Cheers

Roger Adams

That's sad to hear.  I have dealt with Larry on numerous occasions and found him to be an absolute gent.  It doesn't sound too good, but I would like to publicly thank him for his excellent service over the years and wish him all the very best.
